Pierre Garçon signed a massive deal with the Washington Redskins. The Colts have turned their attention to a familiar face as a result: Reggie Wayne.
The Colts lost wide receiver Pierre Garcon, 25, earlier in the day when he signed a six-year, $42.5 million contract with the Washington Redskins that threatened to leave them without their No. 1, Wayne, and No. 2 receivers with a rookie quarterback, probably Stanford’s Andrew Luck expected to be their first pick in the April draft.
With the Colts and Wayne talking, there is at least a chance Luck will have a steady hand and savvy head working on the outside.
Mike Chappell reports he won’t come cheap:
Colts will have to pay Reggie market value. Asked him if he’d give team ‘bluelight special.’ Said ‘I don’t shop at Kmart.’ Nice.

The Colts have also been linked to tight end John Carlson and defensive end Cory Redding.
